My favorite food is anything that someone else prepared — and tastes good — and which someone other than me will clean up when the meal is finished. In the end, I don’t care exactly what kind of food it is, as long as it isn’t something really bizarre (like snail, ew). I want to be served and not wind up on clean-up detail.
It would be nice if the served food were take out Sushi with a big side dish of shrimp tempura, but if i can’t get the Japanese food, I’ll take a pizza. I’m not picky. All I want is not to have to cook and clean, slice, dice, fry, saute, or bake. Mind you, I love my kitchen and I’m a good cook and a good baker. I’ve been cooking and cleaning kitchens for 55 years. I think that’s enough. And once someone else takes over the cooking? I’ll be delighted to occasionally make something special for special occasions.
That’s what I REALLY want to eat.
